Guest Comments


"Dear Graham, we are safely returned from Florida and just have to thank you for letting us visit your wonderful home. Everything was fantastic and we spent the best times eating outside and messing about in the pool."

"Thank you for the use of your lovely, comfortable, extremely spacious and well equipped Florida home. It was ideally located for our needs, being a simple 15 minutes drive from the beach and an hour from Busch Gardens. The outside kitchen by the pool was used almost daily and the outlook from the pool over the lake with its wildlife was fantastic. The highlight of the week for all of us, including the thrill ride seekers, was the kayak trip along the Weeki Wachee river, which ended with two manatees swimming under our boats. We'd have no hesitation in recommending your property to our family and friends"

"We had a wonderful holiday and really enjoyed staying in your lovely house. We managed to make ourselves feel very much at home (no difficulty there!) and were very sad to leave. The Glen Lakes estate is very impressive and we found everyone very friendly and helpful - we can certainly see why you decided to buy a property there."

"We had an excellent, relaxing holiday thank you very much. We were very pleased with your home, it came well equipped with all you could ever need for a Floridian holiday. Weeki Wachee is very well located and very much a casual laid back southern area. We enjoyed fishing and travelling up to Homossassa Springs and Crystal Rivers, we took an airboat ride out to the Gulf which was excellent with all the wildlife and even the dolphins turned out to entertain us. Thank you very much for the loan of your property, it really was a beautiful home."

Accessibility

This property is all on the ground floor and all the bedrooms are easily accessible for wheelchairs or visitors with mobility problems. The bath in the master bedroom is a 'step into' bath.

Outside

The villa is a large detached property with a garage that will hold three cars. The lawns and trees/bushes are looked after every week, as is the pool/jacuzzi, by outside firms. The private pool is kidney shaped and has the sun on it for almost all of the day. Both the pool and separate jacuzzi can be illuminated with underwater lights in the evening. The pool area is very private and overlooks a wonderful lake with water fountains.

Coast/Beach

The villa is a 10 min drive from beautiful sandy beaches and the warm waters of the Gulf coast. They are safe with golden sand and often have wild dolphins swimming very close to the beach. Alternatively there are a number of freshwater rivers (with the very rare Manatees) set in wildlife reservations ideal for canoeing/kayaking. The closest of which is only 1 mile away.

Golf

This villa is within a private community with its own superb 18 hole golf course which is available for your use. You may even be entitled to a free round of golf whilst you are there. Other 18 hole championship golf courses are available within a 20 min drive.

Travel

Tampa Airport is one hour drive away. Orlando Airport is 1hr 45 mins drive away. The use of a rental car is highly recommended during your stay.

Distances

Clearwater and Tampa beaches can be reached in an hour whilst Hudson Bay beach will take you 20 mins by car. All shops and amenities in Weeki Wachee or Spring Hill will take you 10 minutes by car.

Further Details

Walmart, Winn Dixie, Publix superstores are all within 10 mins by car as are banks/ATMs, clothes shops and chemists. Numerous good quality restaurants such as Red Lobster and Outback can be found on Highway 19 - a 15 min drive from the villa. This highway also has many great bars offering very good value for money light meals and TV entertainment. An absolute must is to visit Pine Island beach (10 mins), Hudson Bay beach (20 mins) and to try out the kayaks on the Week Wachee river (5 mins). In our opinion (having visited them all!) the Busch Gardens Theme Park in Tampa (1hr away) is the best Theme park for both adults and children alike.
